This Hair Trend Is Always In – & It's So Easy To Pull Off

I still distinctly remember my most-coveted hairstyles as a tiny tot. Moesha's box braids were the top, while Whitney Houston's spiral curls from her Cinderella remake were up there, too. And curls? Literally anyone's big, sausage-y, old Hollywood-style waves piqued my interest.

Moral of the story: There are few things classier than big ol' cascading curls, either swept to one side, over the shoulder to show off your dangling earrings, or messed up a la Rihanna. It seems like Hollywood — as well as a few designers — agree, as we've seen stars with huge curls on the red carpet and down the runway more and more lately. Like a LBD or a Levi's jean jacket, this is one look that will never go out of style.

With those impossibly glossy red curls, Emma Stone looked every bit of the winner that she was at the Oscars.
To recreate any wavy look, divide your hair into sections. Spray each section with a holding spray before wrapping it around the iron, then set your waves by creating pin curls. When you take them out, softly brush through with a comb or boar-bristle brush. Finish with a shine spray, and hit the red carpet! (Or, you know, just watch our video tutorial above.)
